Hey there! For those of you who survived Yaoi-con and took pictures and have con-reports to share, please post the links to them here. :) I'd love to see how the pics that other members and con-attendees took, and I miss cosplayers so hopefully I'll see pictures of the cosplayers (or silly pictures) that I missed.. haha Happy post-Halloween and Happy posting! ;)

I didn't take that many pics, but the ones that are up are in my gallery.

Still debating if I want/should post any pics from the auction... LOL

I just finished uploading the pictures taken with my real camera (there are a handful of shots taken with my cheap digital on the second page)... I'm pretty happy with most of the photos. Please take a look and feel free to comment!

Gomen..since I organize pics by series instead of by date/event, not everything from Y con will be easily found ^.^'' ah.. i should find a better way to organize crap.. and update my pathetic website x.x

Click on "Yaoi Con" of course. As usual, comments always welcome. Karisu will probably go away culling some pictures so check out the photos before she does :-)

Yes, the infamous X-rated skit picture will be deleted or put in a private folder very soon...

Some of the pictures I took can be found at http://photobucket.com/albums/v469/vel-chan/YaoiCon%202004/
I hope they're not too horrible, my old camera is pretty crappy. Anyway, enjoy!

and my picture is on consplayers.com but i refuse to say which one i am, cuz i look HORRID! UGH! *note to self, starve myself so that i look good cosplaying next time*

Mine is pretty bad too, because having a big, highly reflective whiteboard is not conducive to making a camera meter correctly or balance the brightness against skin with any kind of pigment in it. *note to self: No more costumes with huge tracks of white in front.* :sulk: Oh, well. Not bad for a first time out. Better luck next year.

Anyhow, I dropped a con-report for my first YaoiCon, Chronicles of the Lost Catboy (http://www.asstr.org/~adrian_mailenna/YaoiCon04.htm), into my ASSTR directory. I'm relatively new to the whole congoing thing in general and the yaoi thing in particular, so I'm not entirely sure if there's a traditional format or not - it's more like a set of journal entries than a really good report on what happened at the con, since I got overwhelmed and only saw a piece of it.

Fair warnings: If you are underage, do not access ASSTR! Drop me a PM or something and I will email you if you really want to read it. ASSTR is a text-porn archive and therfore not work safe. My review is PG-13 at worst, but it's still on the site, because that's where I dump most of my writing. :chatah: Unfortunately, not much of it is group-relevant, since my yaoi involvement begins with The Tears of Anael, which is not uploaded until I get Anne's permission. More will come though. So if you explore, find only 473 words of BL-fic there (760 if you count an ambiguous character), and clutch your imploded eyes screaming "OMG HE WRITES T3H 3V1L H3TPR0N! :waaaah: :waaaah: :waaaah: ", all I'll give you is a shrug and a "Told you so." On the other hand, there is a feedback form for requests/comments/hate mail/what-have-you.

Aw, thank you! ^.^ Maybe next year I will still spend time in the Lost Catboy suit - my other planned costume, Bob-Omb, is pretty neat for showing off and things, if I can get it to work, but it's really stupid for trying to actually do anything (I imagine it would be mute like the Lost Catboy, but has no hands or whiteboard - its only emotional response is to flash menacingly at people) - so probably it will still be around.

Thanks for remembering me!

Metering some of these costumes can definitely be a challenge. Hence you see pictures w/ blown out highlights or disappearing shadws or funky skin tones a lot. If you are a photographer, don't despair though, just keeping clicking the shutter and learn from the mistakes...

Well, greycards were invented for a reason (at least for film junkies). I've never gotten more than maybe a quarter-stop off by metering off a standard-issue greycard. The problem is that film is stupid where digital is smart, and lacks white-balance. I think digital's white-balance makes for much better pictures generally but can get all screwed up with the bright, contrasty colors and such in cosplay costumes.

But that's just my guess at it.

Finally! ^_^

School has been holding me back to post these pictures. (I still haven't finnished AM yet) Hope you enjoy these pictures. They include all of the festivities that Traveling Valentine has done during Halloween weekend. This includes the Oakland Gaskell Masquerade Ball and Yaoi Con. Hope you enjoy them!

Just wanted to tell everyone that I have run into a few problems so I am posting Yaoi Pics as much as I can. I have Friday Pics up by Youko Kurama (note* there are no extream photos on cosplay of the Bishouen Auction) and I have over 300 that I took Saturday posted. Happy Holidays to all.
:dance:
